for the doctrine of the faith. in that role, he was a cardinal and known as cardinal ratzinger. at that time, back in the 1970's and 1980's, the victims were speaking up and coming forward and trying to get some semblance of justice. more important, they wanted to prevent other children from going through what they had been through. so they contacted the people in the vatican and cardinal ratzinger was involved. he had the opportunity to intervene, remove father murphy from his position in the priesthood, and cardinal ratzinger chose not to do that. there are letters, apparently, father murphy started writing to cardona ratzinger and asked that he be permitted to live out the rest of his life as a priest in good standing. cardinal ratzinger made the decision that that was more important than ensuring the safety of children or try and heal those who they knew had been violated by father murphy. i think that is unfortunately the legacy that pope benedict left for us, one with words but not action. something simple like today, and in these last two weeks, we would even encouraged pope benedict to use
